What Our Clients Are Saying
“Thank you for your help and for what you do for our kids. Have a great day.”
When we learned that the general education placement was questioned by the elementary school, we realized that we needed additional help and advice. We contacted Diane Wiscarson and were from the beginning impressed by her services, her vast knowledge and kindness and how thoroughly she was prepared for each meeting. She offered professional support, intervened on our behalf at the school/district and was present with us at several IEP meetings. Due to her input and her interventions our son could stay in his neighborhood school and got all needed services implemented in his IEP. Diane is a wonderful person, highly knowledgeable in special education law, she has been supporting our son’s needs and even though she is a very kind person, she fights for your children’s needs. When it was time for our son to transition to middle school Diane again was a great help and advocated at the transition meetings and succeeded to receive for him the support he required at his new school. Her fees are very reasonable and her wonderful office staff and she are easy to reach for any questions. She relentlessly advocated for our son’s needs with the school, district and their attorney. We can highly recommend her, with her help our son has been able to thrive at his neighborhood schools.
“… the IEP meeting this AM went very well, with all of his teachers raving about his progress on every front. He spends 90% of his time in the gen ed classroom, and he is at grade level in all his work. He is gifted in math, and just won a poetry contest! Just wanted you to know that you were on the side of right with this one, and we sure got the right answer for him!”
Lidia, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for how hard you work for [my son]. I feel so lucky to have found such a [great] advocate. You’re so knowledgeable and have no problem saying what you need to say. I thank you for asking me the hard questions, because it’s good to consider all aspects, especially the ones I don’t even think about. I know it’s your job, but you really put your heart into it and that’s why you’re AWESOME. Have a great weekend.
“After many years of being frustrated with our children’s educational experience we were referred to Wiscarson Law. Once we began working together our situation improved in significant and positive ways. We learned about all of the various educational support programs and mechanisms we could access, our communication with the schools, teachers and counselors improved and we also saw improvement in our children’s school work and self esteem. I highly recommend Wiscarson Law if you are seeking an attorney to advise you on your children’s educational needs and options.”
Thank you Diane. We really appreciate your help with navigating [the school district] and [our daughter’s] educational needs to a successful end. We’ll be in contact if we have need in the future. Our best to you!
